Could someone please guide me to the article, if it exists, related to Shell Game answer traps or please tell me the way, how I can eliminate this trap?

Thanks. But, I have already read these 2 posts. I think I have not put my question correctly. Let me rephrase.
Actually, I want to know the different words which are normally used in a typical shell game trap answer. Is there a compendium containing words that are generally used in GMAT to make an answer choice qualify as a Shell Game trap? If no, could you please tell me some of the words (e.g. probably & possibly, as mentioned in the LSAT link) which I can use to eliminate the answer choices that have this trap.

http://gmat-cr.blogspot.in/ read this, if you haven't already done so. And trust me it's the knowledge and application of the concept that would help you solve questions rather than any such list (I don't think any such list exists).

Thanks for the post!
Yes that's true - knowing the concept, & applying the correct approach are primary.
Was just curious to know if there are some tricks too, that can help me to guess the answers in hard questions, when just 5-6 minutes are left in the exam.
